Since 1999, we have introduced storytellers to schools and many other institutions during our annual Stories from the Hearth Festival.  This has proven to be very successful.  Throughout the years, over 600 storytelling sessions have taken place in various primary schools, secondary schools and pre-schools in County Wexford.   Both international and local storytellers have worked together with teachers, drama teachers, local amateurs, carers and library staff alike.
